New Policy Brief, "A Case for Fair Use: The Georgia State Decision"

A new EDUCAUSE Policy brief from Policy Specialist Joan Cheverie summarizes the long-awaited opinion released May 11, 2012 in the Georgia State University e-reserves copyright infringement case, and provides analysis of what this means for higher ed. The case was a challenge by three academic publishers against Georgia State’s e-reserves policy. The publishers sued in April 2008, claiming that the e-reserves policy went far beyond the bounds of fair use. The brief is now available.
